Pumpkin Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Frosting
by Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
Yield: (24 cupcakes)

Ingredients

    For the Cupcakes
    • 2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 tbsp. baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
    • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    • 1-1/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
    • 1 cup pumpkin (canned or cooked and mashed)
    • 3/4 cup milk

    For the frosting
    • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup butter, softened
    • 1/4 cup pumpkin (canned or cooked and mashed)
    • 4 cups of powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
    • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

    Instructions

    For the cupcakes

    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a muffin tin with cupcake papers (24 cavities) and set aside.

    2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. In a separate medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs until thoroughly combined. Add the pumpkin and combine. Stir in the dry ingredients alternately with the milk, blending until the mixture is smooth after each addition.

    3. Divide the batter between the prepared muffin cups, filling about two-thirds full. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center of one of the cupcakes tests clean. Remove cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.

    For the frosting

    Beat the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl until thoroughly combined and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Beat until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl at least once to make sure all ingredients are incorporated. Frost cupcakes.
    Refrigerate leftover cupcakes.

    1. I must say I recently tried a pumpkin muffin recipe from another blog and it was so bad I had to toss them all before I could even salvage them with icing, so I am going to try your cupcakes next, I know they are going to be much better! thanks Jamie!
